Mancat Monday: Mishing My Mash on Monday

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Hello everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend, ours was good but somewhat uneventful.  I thought I’d share a bit of a mish-mash today and it’s in no particular order.

I’ve taken down the Bootsy fundraising info.  I think we’ve gotten all the funds we’re going to get at this point.  Bootsy is pretty much the same and he is pretty much home with Jenna now.  His health is still the same, but at least he is a very happy boy.  Thank you all so much for supporting and helping him.

Hey, a Gracie diet update.  Dad, last week, decided the heck with the Gracie diet, she was doing nothing but gaining weight.  While on the diet she ended up weighing the most she has ever weighed. Since she has been off of the diet she has lost 6 ounces.  Go figure.  We think that since food was limited, when it was down she ate all she could. Anyways, we’ll see how this works out.

It’s been pretty darn cold for our neck of the woods and we’ve not seen that much of the ferals because Dark O’Thirty arrives way too early.  They’ve been coming and eating because their food is gone, we’re just not seeing them as much.

Finally, I’ve been lobbying to get the Christmas Tree put up but it hasn’t happened yet. The new one we got last year is big and the bottom branches are low to the carpet.  Yes, that means the peeps can’t get to us at medicine time.

Anyways, that’s a few of the things going on around here.  I hope you all have a calm and snuggly week.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Funny how going off that diet worked for Gracie! Paws crossed I never have to do one of those diet things because, um, I really love food!

So glad that Bootsie is home and happy with Jenna. He will get lots of love and attention there. Gracie, glad you are off the darn diet. You all try to stay warm.

The effort to help Bootsie was definitely worth it – bless him and you for that. Bootsie is happy and comfortable and that’s just grand. Good for the weight loss for Gracie even though it was as a result of coming OFF the diet….HAHAHA….interesting how that works! We’ve had some super cold weather here too but we all know that soon it will be cold AND snowy so we’re just enjoying the COLD part before the other arrives! Happy Monday!

Hugs, Sammy

No diet is a win win. Glad Bootsie is happy too. We don’t get a tree here, we have to go to that other place to see it, and then we try and knock it over.

That’s sort of funny about Gracie losing weight now that she isn’t on a diet! I think Lita has gained more weight. 🙁 I sure hope Lita doesn’t figure out your “hide under the tree at meds time” trick!!

Glad to hear that Bootsie is doing well and that Sister Gracie is losing weight! If you said the “d” word to our Gracie, she probably wouldn’t know what you meant. 🙂 Speaking of mash, can you do the Monster Mash, Brian? 🙂

We will take down our Bootsie ad if you think it right to do so. Thank you, and thank Jenna, for being so kind and generous to Bootsie. I would have taken him in an heartbeat had he been closer, regardless of the expense! You guys have a small section so close to our heart…….

Diet’s HUH!! Maybe just chalk it up to a fail eh? It is wasn’t working what’s the point.

Pretty cold here too (California standards) which meant that Buster pretty much sleeps next to catmama every night now.

Gracie must be very happy now there is no more diet!

What kind of weird stuff is going on in your house, gaining weight on a diet, losing when off? Weird. Poor Bootsie, such a cute kitty. At least he is happy you say.

8 years ago

Bootise sounds like he found a home and love, which is wonderful , we think 🙂

Gracie, we’ve heard diets can be tricky but we don’t know for certain since we love food and it would be dangerous to limit it here ;p

Amazing how Gracie actually lost weight after she got off her diet! Maybe we should try that plan with Ashton, who is going to need some weight loss again soon.

TW hates the dark o’clock thing. I told Gracie that if she came off the diet, she might lose weight. Ya never know.

Precious Bootsie, be well my mancat. And Gracie, indulge with limitation and purrs for continued weight loss

Oh dear, that must be some diet that Gracie was on to gain weight like that. So sorry it didn’t work out. M is watching me like a hawk now that I’m off the diet and on regular food. I think being on the diet was better – seems I got more to eat or something., Now I’m always asking for food. The diet food was supposed to fill me up and it did. Now I’m on regular food and can’t seem to get enough of it. Maybe I should come to live at your house cuz you aren’t worried… Read more »

Good for Gracie!
Hiding under the Christmas tree sounds very festive. I can just see all the cats having a party in the tree with the humans crawling around with the meds… oh boy.

Granny says when I go on like this, I have to be on a diet too, but when she reads all about Gracie, I am sure she will think twice…or not al all anymore 😀 We’re happy that Bootsy is happy now and you just look gorgeous, Brian 🙂 Pawkisses for an Easy Week ahead 🙂 <3
